Sun Valley Bronze uses only the finest quality art grade bronze for consistent, high-quality castings. New ingots are transformed into architectural hardware. Scrap bronze from sand castings is recycled into subsequent castings, and even the floor sweepings are saved and sent to recycling centers.
Patterns originate as an idea on paper. The design then begins to take shape traditionally using hard-carved wood or resin models, or digitally by implementing 3D modeling software.
The furnace heats the bronze to a pouring temperature of 2250° fahrenheit.
Precision machining ensures that every piece of Sun Valley Bronze hardware functions perfectly and meets our exacting specifications.
Sun Valley Bronze hardware assembly includes stainless steel components and teflon coated springs for flawless function, and to ensure longevity in humid or coastal climates.
Beautiful, Hand Applied Patinas
Hand applied non-toxic patinas take the place of time and nature to oxidize copper and other alloys, giving the bronze a deep, aged look and feel.
Sun Valley Bronze showrooms display a variety of styles and patina choices. Whatever your project, residential or commercial, it is easy to mix and match designs and finishes.
